Lola is approaching two hundred years old. To survive and maintain the survival of her species, she must seduce a human male and steal his soul. She finds Stephan, seduces him, but is unable to finish the deed. Unable to complete her mission, Lola leaves, but being a reporter and smelling an interesting story related to recent killings, Stephan follows her. Will Lola be able to resist Stephan a second time or will she give in to the pressure to save her alien species?
At its heart, After Glow is a meeting of soul mates. From the moment Lola and Stephan meet, their attraction is undeniable. I enjoyed how Lola’s story slowly unwinds, not handing the reader her entire existence at once. Also, I was amused when Stephan followed Lola, not giving up on the woman who caught his eye. Unfortunately, the believability of Lola and Stephan’s relationship ends after this point. I like stories of destined soul mates, but I like there to be more of a connection than that of the flesh. Sadly, After Glow isn’t much more than an extremely hot, sexy night of earth shattering sex.
I liked the idea of After Glow, but I think the story needed to be a bit longer to fully explore the relationship between Lola and Stephan. This erotic short story began well, but did not have the necessary length to develop a believable romantic connection.
